Sitting quietly in an interrogation room, the girls are covered in dirt.
No surprise then when a dirtbag shows up… Detective Wilden! (Last seen blackmailing Hanna’s mom’s vagina on Season 1).
He questions them and reminds that homicide is a capital offense. (Here we go again)
(The episode is a series of flashbacks and flash-forwards)
The girls can’t reach Dr. Sullivan and fear the worst, but “A” sends Aria a picture of Dr. Sullivan holding up the latest addition of the town newspaper with the caption, “She is still alive.”
Not long after, the girls are standing around in Spencer’s living room with a box that says “Open or she dies.” Spencer says it was there when she got home.
They open it and find a ransom note… “You have until 7PM to save her. These are my demands.”
They also find dolls for each of them save for Emily. Each doll has a voice command.
Aria’s says “Make Jackie go away”. Inside the box there is evidence that she plagiarized her soon to be published work. (Does “A” have the entire town wired or part of the damn CIA?)
Hanna’s doll says “Stop the wedding” and Spencer’s says, “Keep Toby safe”
Aria’s task seems the easiest as she just waltzes into Jackie’s office and shows her the proof she has. “I think you need to leave Hollis”, she adds, before walking out (Huge sacrifice)
Unfortunately for Aria, Jackie is smarter than she could ever be, so she shows up at Aria’s house and threatens to expose their affair and demands Aria break up with Ezra. (You can tell Jackie is a bunny boiler type chick, you just don’t mess with that)
Spencer works out the only way to keep Toby safe is to break up with him, so she does just that.
Emily thought she was safe from A’s game but, on her way to Hanna’s father wedding, she discovers her doll… IN THE BACKSEAT OF HER CAR! (l am pretty sure I could walk into these girls’ house and fix myself a snack while they are in the next room and these bitches wouldn’t even notice)
Emily’s doll says “I am taking you to her, go alone.”
Hanna does as she was forced to and stops the wedding by revealing – to Isobel – that her father slept with Ashley while he was in town. Soon after, “A” gives Hanna an address.
Meanwhile, Emily’s tampered navigation system leads her to a barn. As she enters to inspect a car that’s running, the door is shut behind her. The emission causes her to suffocate (This chick has no fight instincts, others would have broken the car window with their forearm or something. She could have even taken her dress off to protect her arm. Wtf) and as she loses consciousness, she visualizes Ali.
Emily asks ‘Ali’ who “A” is but Ali declines and warns, “two can only keep a secret if one of them is dead” (Twins?)
Emily regains consciousness and finds the girls standing around her. Emily thinks Alison isn’t dead.
They then find a shovel and coordinates, which they assume will lead them to Dr. Sullivan. However, after locating the spot, they soon find themselves surrounded by police.
Spencer realizes they have been set up. (I love how they realize everything AFTER the fact)
Back at the precinct, and in the present, Jenna stops by to talk to Garrett and says she wishes she could see the faces on the “bitches” so she can further enjoy what they are doing to them.
Jenna then asks about Jason, and Garret tells her Jason now knows he did not kill Alison but has no idea they are the ones that wrote the note and are “getting away with it”.
He then hands Jenna Page 5 of Ali’s autopsy report and tells her to burn it when she gets home. Jenna adds, “she deserved to die like that”
Later, in the Interrogation Room, Detective Wilden tells the girls they always knew the weapon used to kill Ali was a shovel, the same shovel they were caught using. (And that proves what exactly? Seriously there are too many holes here to even continue discussing)
The Pretty Little Liars Season 2 Finale ends with Dr. Sullivan being handed an envelope by “A” having done everything asked of her. She is visibly disgusted and peeved at having to follow A’s orders.
(So basically the only concrete thing we got from this season is that the weapon used to kill Ali was a damn shovel. The writers want us to think Garret and Jenna killed Ali, when in fact they are hiding something else. Oh and “A” has “pretty eyes”. They shouldn’t have spoiled us with soooo much details)
